      • Good saw, but not without drawbacks

      OK. To start off with, I am a construction professional by trade and therefore not just a homeowner or DIY'er. It supports my family and I and is not just a hobby. The build quality is pretty good and the adjustments are OK but the support bars on the side are pretty cheap. We also replaced the laser on this saw with a Laser Kerf kit since it works much better and is lasting much longer than the laser that came with this saw. The power is average, not underpowered or super-powerful, just enough to run the 5000 RPM blade speed (5000 RPM is AFTER the motor's speed has been reduced through the gearbox). Unlike some other reviewers, my saw was able to make a complete cut. We use this saw exclusively for fiber cement, wood, and vinyl siding, and it has held up over the past few months. Overall, this is a great saw for a homeowner or DIY'er and decent for semi-professional use, with some compromises thrown in there for the cheap price. It will make rough cuts or medium-accuracy cuts, but not super-accurate cuts for furniture building. I find that our 12" DeWalt dual-bevel "chop" saws are more accurate and thus more useful for finish work like cutting crown moulding. Hope this review helps.

      Pros Powerful, Easy to Use, Accurate, Light Weight Cons Limited Features, flimsy stabilizer bars, laser could be better
